Days Without Television

Yep, that's right. We are without t.v. right now, due to lack of payment. :-P
Not that we don't have any channels at all- which is really weird- we do still receive some of the news and Christian channels. Also, it's not that I actually watch t.v. a lot. Quite honestly, I don't very much at all. It's more a matter of my mom watches it most of the day, and I'm always in the livingroom, so I always see it.
I do have my shows that I enjoy (as you can see from one of the lists on the side of this page), but I don't have any shows right now that are absolute must sees. However, my mom is currently mourning the loss of being able to watch The Biggest Loser and American Idol tonight. :-P

So, where have I been and what have I been doing since Valentine's Day? Mostly reading and watching DVDs. You see, all the wonderful goodies I bought with part of my tax return came during the past week, and I have been going through and getting to know them and letting them get to know me.
What all did I get? Well, for starters, I got a new set of season 4 Doctor Who DVDs, as my old set didn't work pretty much since I got them, but  I didn't realize that until it was too late to return them. My bad.
I also got the DVD of the Classic Who episode "The Sontaran Experiment" with the Fourth Doctor played by Tom Baker.
Most squeeably I got the first season DVDs of the BBC's show Merlin! ^.^ There is much squeeage and smiles among my life just with that! (and might I highly recommend the episode ten commentary- absolutely hilarious!) Still, that wasn't all! I finally got, after years of wanting, and down right needing, a NOOK!!!! :-D ^.^ :-D ^.^
Let's face it, with how much I love to read and travel, and how I always try to have a book with me, a NOOK really was a neccessity. My purse is only so big, you know.
All that I was able to get, plus a nice cover for my NOOK plus a bunch of NOOKbooks (including the full CoN), and still be able to put some money toward bills, and a new pair of pants for work, and for three pairs of some much needed new stump socks. Now with the money I got from my taxes, plus whatever I get from the fund raiser at work, I hope to be able to get as close as possible to a whole week's worth of socks.
God has given me great blessings. :-)

And I just finished reading The Hobbit. Yes, it is the first time I've read it all the way through- so sue me. The first time I tried, years ago, I couldn't even get into the first chapter. Now, I got through the whole book, and I liked it, though I think I still prefer the storyline of LotR, better. (though I haven't finished the actual books for that, either...just "Fellowship")

I'm afraid I haven't written anything new, yet. Still, the ideas for the main part of the story are starting to swarm around in my head. We'll see what happens in the near future.

Song stuck in my head right now:
